Steve Von Till is an American musician and singer-songwriter, better known for his work with band Neurosis. He announced the release of a new solo album. No Wilderness Deep Enough is out on August 7th via Neurot Recordings. According to the press release, The album’s six pieces of music shape a hallucinatory landscape of sound that plumbs the depths of the natural world’s mysteries and uncertainties—questions that have vexed humanity since the dawn of time asked anew amidst a backdrop that’s as haunting as it is holistic.
It arrives alongside Von Till’s first published work of original poetry, Harvestman: 23 Untitled Poems and Collected Lyrics. The book is a collection of new poetry and lyrics from Von Till’s solo career over the past 20 years. It’s a work of rich text that showcases his deeply felt ruminations on the myriad beginnings and endings of life itself, offering another medium of which to experience his singular artistic perspective.
We already shared “Dreams of Trees” and “Shadows on the Run”; “Indifferent Eyes” is the new excerpt. About the track and video Steve remarks “Indifferent Eyes is perhaps the best example of how the process of creating No Wilderness Deep Enough pulled something very different out of me vocally; something more expressive, more out on a limb and adventurous, and definitely outside my previous comfort zone.
I am grateful at this stage in my artistic life to still have opportunities to challenge myself and grow. This past winter, photographer / videographer Bobby Cochran traveled up to our property in North Idaho to shoot this video. I love any excuse to get outside and stay outside in the winter time. We hiked, built fires, and shared many hours of great conversation about what is important in this life. I think that energy comes through in this video albeit in a simple and understated manner.”
